Hi,

Please let me know about the following:

Any issues using LikeBtn with VB 3.8.x?

Any issues using LikeBtn on a totally private forum (only logged in members can see the forum)?

Any security/privacy issues using LikeBtn?

Will using LikeBtn slow down forum?

Thanks.

Hi,

1) http://likebtn.com/en/vbulletin-like-button
2) Likebtn for anonimous voting only. But you can program your forum for showing buttons code for logged-in users only.
3) Likebtn provide HTTPs support. Loading buttons using HTTPS available in ULTRA plan.
4) No, Like Button is loaded asynchronously and does not slow down your website.

Thanks,

I'm giving this a go but have hit a problem almost immediately.

When I click one of your buttons, to 'Like' one post in a thread, my 'Like' is added to all other posts in the thread.

What have I missed or done wrong?

That sounds right but what is the required "data-identifier" parameter?

It's an unique string or number (for example you can use id of liked item or post).
You must to insert it into button code (data-identifier parameter).
If you use some special site system, try to ask your developers how to generate it dynamically.

Hi, As stated in my first post I'm using, or hope to be using, LikeBtn in VBulletin 3.8. I want LikeBtn buttons to appear in each and every post on the forums. The likes/dislikes shown in each post must be unique to that post. In other words, I need the LikeBtn buttons to work exactly as they work on here. Surely you can tell me the correct code to add to the data-identifier parameter field?

Thanks but that doesn't help.

When I click one of your buttons, to 'Like' one post in a thread, my 'Like' is added to all other posts in the thread.

I now have;

data-group-identifier parameter not needed.
Try to remove button code and follow video instruction:

You don't need to write code manually.
Button generator will generate correct code for you.
You just must to insert this code into vBulletin post template.

Please refer to Post #3 above.
At that point I had inserted the button code, as per instructions in video, but when I clicked one of your buttons, to 'Like' one post in a thread, my 'Like' was added to all other posts in the thread.
I had left data-group-identifier parameter field blank when I generated the code.

In other words, the code below (the first code I tried), results in buttons that when clicked add a like to all buttons.

Copied directly from Postbit template.

When I click one of your buttons, to 'Like' one post in a thread, my 'Like' is added to all other posts in the thread. In fact, clicking on any Like button adds a like to every single post on the entire forum.

Do I take it that your lack of response means you have given up on this?

Since you have been kind enough to let me know that you're on the case, I will wait to hear from you before making decisions on how to proceed.

Try to follow video instruction in the posts above.
Likebtn span contains only class and data-identifier.
Try to remove other parameters in your span code.
Try to clear cache - Ctrl+F5.

Please refer to Post #13.

To address your points in order.


I have followed your video instructions carefully, I have used your code generator carefully and I have carefully inserted code as per your instructions. Code quoted in Post #13 is exactly what I tried and it does not work.
I have no idea what you are trying to get at.
I have no idea what you are trying to get at.
Tried that several times and it made no difference at all. In fact, I logged out of forum, deleted cookies, cleared cache and then logged back in - that made no difference either.


If you are saying that the inserted code is somehow wrong the please just post correct code.

The code below works as it should in that buttons work individually.

However, now that I have removed all other parameters (generated by your code generator), I have a load of junk that I don't want (Facebook share buttons etc) and none of the stuff that I do want (Show popup on disliking etc).

The question is; how do I get the other parameters to work?
Clearly your code generator doesn't get the job done so how do we proceed?

Try to regenerate button with needed parameters, like you generated working button.
Post new code please, if it will be not working.
Do not type parameters manually.
As i see cache clearing helped.

New button code, as shown below, generated a few minutes ago using your code generator.
No parameters have been typed manually - they never have.
This code does not work, this code results in buttons that when clicked add a like to all buttons.
Clearing cache does not help.

Support,

This has been going on for over two weeks and that is way too long.

Please provide fix ASAP or, failing that, issue full refund.
